Whether its tech giants like Microsoft planning to create realistic workspaces or Ariana Grande holding a concert in Fortnite, the opportunities that the new age of the metaverse has created for interactive digital worlds are proving limitless. In fact, Web 3.0 is estimated to permeate just about every sector in some way in the near future, and the market estimated to bring in over $1 trillion in annual revenues.
By definition, the metaverse is a convergence of physical and digital interactions, a virtual community where users can not only work and play but also transact and socialize. While the metaverse is still in its infancy and has a lot of growing to do before it can be defined, the space is quickly gaining momentum.
Within the metaverse, aka Web 3.0, there isn’t just one but many virtual worlds, and those that are emerging are enabling people to deepen and transform their social interactions digitally. By adding an immersive, three-dimensional layer to the web, the metaverse is enabling more authentic and engaging experiences.
Besides from its advantages in strengthening community, the metaverse also eliminates boundaries and democratizes access to experiences by providing easy access from the comfort of the user’s homes. The pandemic impacted every part of people’s lives, with one of the main parts being the way that people connect and meet with one another. With the absence of in-person meetings, as people continue to find more ways to engage online, the metaverse has arrived as a naturally evolution of this need to connect on a deeper level digitally.
Virtual reality has allowed the metaverse to take the relationships from the 2D experience and merge them into fully immersive 3D environments that can be shared amongst others. The technology aims to provide a utopia where users can exist anywhere and to have limitless experiences not bound by physical parameters. Whether it’s through games or the entertainment industry, metaverse technology is allowing people to build communities and not only connect more conveniently, but also more meaningfully.
Humans are all social creatures and as more and more people are logging on to the metaverse to spend time with one another, they are learning that experiences in the metaverse beyond just games exist to connect. Take the event space, for example. In Web 3.0, socially interactive events can be held virtually on platforms that can transcend the usual parameters of in-person parties and meetups.
Case in point, CryptoBilli$, a platform that aims to create “the largest, most colourful, vibrant, lively community in the Metaverse” through hosting competitions and events with a unique range of music and dancing. “We want members of the CryptoBilli$ community to feel like they are in a place like no other, where they will always be having an event to look forward to,” a spokesperson from the company told Luna PR.
In addition to its virtual interactive events, CryptoBilli$ will be unleashing a range of 2D and 3D NFTs and unique wearable face masks, which users can wear in the Metaverse in Decentraland on their avatars. According to CryptoBilli$, the masks are “are all hand-drawn, giving viewers a nostalgic feeling, as if they’re watching an old cartoon”.
Metaverse technology is revolutionising the way that people connect online, and comes as a natural evolution in a time when people are looking for meaningful ways to build communities digitally. CryptoBilli$’s groundbreaking technology aims to build community through its immersive interactive parties and events.
